I continue to receive requests for OpenSourceMark source code. You can download the source code here: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_M9uysbCa–dEJoM01kZmgwNlk&usp=sharing

I have also made public a sophisticated benchmark harness that my company developed that can be used to create application level benchmarks like SysMark. You can access the source code here: https://github.com/van-smith/OPBM

I am also making public the miniBench source code: https://github.com/van-smith/miniBench

OpenSourceMark and miniBench have both been very effective at providing CPU performance insights for new product development, validation, flag mining and product positioning.
